Job Listing Sparks Speculation Of Apple Television
According to a recent job listing for Apple, the company is looking for people to work on the next generation power supply technology. The job listing until a few hours ago read:
â€œYou will be part of pride developing innovative designs, which are implemented in products used by millions of people. The position primarily involves high-density offline power supplyâ€™s development for Appleâ€™s next generation Macintosh platforms spanning from notebook computers, desktop computers, servers, standalone displays and TV.â€
The important thing here was that Apple had differentiated between standalone displays and TVâ€™s by clubbing them separately in the listing.
This led to speculations that Apple could be working on Apple Televison, not another Apple TV â€“ an area where Apple hasnâ€™t treaded yet. This is not the first time we are hearing rumors and speculations of Apple planning to make its own television. Back in 2009, there were reports about this possibility including a report from Piper JaffrayÂ analyst Gene Muster who thought this was a distinct possibility. This job listing has just renewed those speculations again.
However, as you can see below Apple has edited the earlier job description and the â€œTVâ€ bit has been changed to â€œApple TVâ€.
It’s a pity as it had got us all excited. We would love to buy a television set made by Apple. What about you?
